Traditional dance and drumming group

The Ta’an Kwach’an Dancers have existed in various incarnations for fifteen years, after several people started to revitalize the dances of the Ta’an. Comprised of adults and children, the current 15-member line-up has been performing intensely for the last three years. They perform tradtional songs and dances while wearing traditional regalia. Elders George Dawson, Annie Ned and Angela Sidney mentored the original dancers, passing on the dances and songs that are the core of Southern Tutchone culture.
